American Pharoah wins Kentucky Derby 2015 (VIDEO)
American Pharoah won the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 2, 2015. Jockey Victor Espinoza won two in a row after winning last year with California Chrome. He also won in 2002 with War Emblem.
The puppies predicted the winner correctly!
Firing Line was second, followed by Dormund in third and Frosted in fourth.
American Pharoah went wide on the last turn, but it didn’t really matter as he charged to the finish line.
Ahmed Zayat was the owner and breeder and Bob Baffert was the trainer.
Note: American Pharoah is “misspelled.” There was an error when Zayat registered the name, and they’ve stuck to it. “Pharaoh” is the Egyptian ruler. Pharoah is this horse’s name. 🙂
